are more republicans than voted in 2008. that is the defining question. we stopped by both romney and obama campaign offices today here. i will tell you this, to back up david's point. when i was here at this point four years ago, it was crystal clear and this is a republican part of the state, that john mccain was going to lose, that senator obama was going to carry ohio, and the winner of ohio almost always wins the white house. that is a big open question this time and today, this is just one stop, today, though, anecdotally, there's more energy, more passion, they're working harder at the republican offices because they think they can surprise us on election day and make up that gap. to be clear, the obama campaign has had a lot of time and a lot of money because he didn't have a primary challenge. so this is going to be a test of whether the president spent his money wisely when the republicans were fighting amongst themselves on a turnout operation, but this final weekend in ohio, feels a whole lot different than the final weekend four years ago. >> john, david, gloria, appr

as a whole, and when you have president obama in his role as president right now and mitt romney kind of relegated to the sidelines right now as the republican challenger, that is an advantage for the incumbent; however, we'll have to see that on tuesday whether or not this had any affect on this at all. >> absolutely, much more on how sandy is impacting the presidential election coming up later in the newscast. thank you very much. >>> and back to some of the unbelievable pictures coming out of new york city. this is the subway station and new york city's mayor said all of the 10 tunnels that carry new yorkers under the east river are flooded. limited subway service will resume tomorrow. buses will be used to make up for the lack of trains running between manhattan and brooklyn. meantime, two of new york's three major airports are back open today. the flights resuming slowly at jfk and newark. laguardia, though, still closed and this ivideo of trucks pumping water from the runways at laguardia. the airport officials are not sure when it will reopen. by the way, if you're flying

politicizing it for some reason then i think there's an opportunity for romney to score. >> and one of the tremendous ironies about this political season is because the republican party acted in a way that really caused, particularly african-american voters to feel there was a lot of racial -- a lot of nasty, ugly hostility not just toward barack obama but the voters. the obama campaign wound up front-loading so much of their early vote, when i was in ohio people were amped up to get out and vote earlier than they normally would have. in florida, soles to the polls which was cut off, has already happened so the obama campaign, in large part because of the republicans have actually banked more early votes this time than they had at this point in '08 so they've built up like a fire wall while the republicans are left with this to hamper their early vote. >> thanks for joining me tonight. >> we'll be right back with more coverage. >>> msnbc's meteorologist is back with the latest. bill, my one question is, where has the worst already happened? and where is the worst yet to happen? >> yeah. it

on the second and third debate. so the news stories focused really on governor romney's vigorous report in the first debate in which he swung away from being a radical republican which he had to be to get his party's nomination and tried to look like a centrist and i think that surprised everyone including obama. >> he also managed to look presidential in those debates, as well, and that was something that perhaps carried him further in the polls than many expected. and does the storm destroy some of that lead that he gained because obama naturally have the advantages in the situation room, he's managing the storm even if it's not as strong as some people initially forecast. doesn't he reclaim that presidential advantage? >> i think he certainly does. after all, governor romney has no official duties whatsoever. he's been running for president since he left the governorship in 2007. president obama seems to be doing a good job. this is not a replay of bush in new orleans with hurricane katrina. we want to see the power restored as quickly as possible and for the press for say the

. >> there are no democrats or republicans during a storm. they're just fellow americans. >> reporter: but the president also returned to his main charge that a romney presidency would hurt the middle class. >> we know what change looks like. and what the governor's offering sure ain't change. >> as the candidates began their closing arguments in the battleground, lines were long for absentee voting in fairfax county. this obama supporter doesn't think any storms will cause any major shift in the presidential contest but hopes there might be a slight lead for president obama. >> because of the storm, if i had to say something's going to get a bump, i guess it would be obama, because he's out front showing leadership, paying attention to the needs of the people. >> reporter: meantime, this romney supporter worries sandy might have sucked some momentum out of the race on both sides. >> momentum sort of disappeared. nobody was really thinking about it. nor did they care for a while. i think it hasn't come back to where it was before. whether that's going to have an effect, i hope not. be

democrats in toward the republicans. guess what, obama's margin was 262,000 in no way, most of it fueled by a huge turnout in early voting, and that he lost the election day voting to make romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are getting bigger. on tuesday it was 150 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that

people. at the time, the republicans in congress and a certain senate candidate by the name of mitt romney -- [booing] don't do, you have to vote. -- boo, you have to vote. he said bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. sound familiar? it turns out his math was as bad back then as it is today. by the end of this second term, america created 23 million new jobs. poverty was down. our deficit became a surplus. so we know our ideas work. what about their ideas? we tried those, too. as for bill clinton, -- after bill clinton left, we tried giving tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried to its triple a regulation so wall street and other companies were free to do whatever they please. what did we get? falling income, deficits, and an economic crisis we have been cleaning up after ever since. we tried one way and it worked. we tried another way and it did not this presents a dilemma for governor romney because he wants to go to the same policies that did not work. he is a talented salesman. in this campaign, he has tried as hard as he can to repackage the same id

republicans more reliable election day voters, the argument goes, democrats have built up a bank of early votes, ones that make wink those battleground states a tougher challenge for romney. obama campaign officials argue polls of early voters in battleground states suggest their bank of obama votes means that romney will have to win on election day well more than half the votes in key states to win. but the president is not relying solely on early voting or even on this new rekindled bipartisan pitch. in this state alone, diane, president obama and his allies have run 16,000 more ads than romney and his allies. and if that's not enough for you, on monday, president obama will be back here in ohio with bruce springsteen. diane? >> okay, thank you jake. >>> and also tonight, the latest in our brand new daily abc news/"washington post" polls. tonight, the poll gives mitt romney a one-point edge. so, we asked abc's david muir to tell us his strategy for the final stretch. >> reporter: mitt romney bolting through the battlegrounds. today, on the plane, it was the candidate taking pictures. ro

office from the republican national committee that were meant for brent doster, the republican chairman of the bush campaign who today is the chairman of the florida romney campaign. now, bbc does not allow me to read other peoples e-mails and by the way how did this happen? apparently it was sent by one of rove's right-hand man, and right-hand claws named tim griffith. not the sharpest knife in the drawer which explains why he's he is a congressman today. so tim sent out these e-mails but instead of sending these private combatants of e-mails to the republican, to the web domain,, he sent them to which is the web site owned by my friend. now i'm not allowed to look at people's e-mails if they are accidentally sent to us, and unless there is evidence of criminality. so i brought the e-mails and look, i brought the e-mails to a law professor of robert f. kennedy jr. and he looked at these e-mails and he said, and that quote in the book, they should be in jail. rove, his right-hand man griffin. why? what's going on here? something called caging lists. caging lists
